Elaagloth (Elah-ah-gloth) are large, and very strange animals, that can adapt to any climate upon any planet. There are two sub-species of Elaagloth, however, they are so rarely seen that they have fallen victim to being damned as myths.
The only commonly found kind of Elaagloth is a large being, 15-25 feet tall, 10-30 feet in diameter, with thick, short legs and rope-like tendrils. They also posses rubber like skin, which can withstand as much abuse as hardened carbon steel, and puckered lips that can open wide enough to swallow any being up to 5 feet across and 15 feet tall in a single gulp. They find Humans very tasty.
